  • Enact the ideal of service as a worthy way to “give back” to the community 
  • Promote friendship and fellowship based on high ethical standards, common courtesies, humour and caring
  • Seek the active contribution of members through collaboration with like-minded people
  • Minimise the management structure and associated processes, and positively foster members’ involvement in decision-making
  • Leverage the expertise and strengths of our members’ involvement in Club activities according to their capability and capacity
  • Use modern communication technologies to expedite business and expand Club activities
  • Be relevant to a younger group by being flexible and responsive to their needs
  • Provide experienced Rotarians to mentor younger members
  • Offer those of limited finances a way to participate by contributing in kind
